How do you connect your existing satellite (Directv) service through ooma??

If you use the new Telo, you would simply plug in the phone line from the DirecTV jack to the Ooma Phone jack, either with a splitter, so your regular phones can work as well, or another way is to connect your Telo phone jack to the house wiring and then plug one of the house wiring jacks to the DirecTV box. The Telo handset could be a second line.

If you use the older Hub, you would do the same thing except you would also be able to use the Scout for additional lines.

If you use DSL the above configuration may not work.

Some of the newer DirecTV receivers can use a network connection instead of dialup. In those systems you may also get extra features like video on demand and some other neat things. I use Dish Network so I can't tell you what models but check the back of the receiver for an RJ45. It will probably be marked "network".
